was a pretty basic statement. i said, when we think about the health of the u.s. economy, we have to remember that a private sector job in a public-sector job -- and a public-sector job are not the same thing. it private sector job pays for itself. a public-sector job is paid for by taxpayers. i thought it was a pretty obvious statement. later, my staff was contacted by a reporter who felt that he needed to fact check the statement. seriously. it was interesting to me, because it said how little so many people understand what makes the economy go. one of our fundamental issues in this country is we have a lot of people setting policy that impacts our economy, but they don't understand how the economy actually works. and the impact of that policy. my second anecdote is this, in a of smallll, 70% business owners said that they thought the federal government was hostile to them. not neutral. not negative. hostile. remember that figure, remember that statement. here we have the stock market achieving record highs day after day. we have large companies in many, many industries reporting record pro

, inheriting the same lousy economy that barack obama did, did you know that today we would have 7 million additional new jobs in america? let me help make that more concrete. 7 million new jobs is the equivalent of getting a job to every man, woman, and child in chicago, houston, philadelphia, and boston. that's what we're talking about. [applause] and the stagnation under president obama doesn't follow uniformly. if you happen to be an environmental lawyer, you're doing great right now. the people who are hurting the most are those who are struggling in the least well-off amongst us. hispanicsident obama, unemployment climbed to 10%. african-american unemployment climbed to 14%. , i have beenme champing what i call opportunity conservativism. -- championing what i call opportunity conservativism. using the means of ascent of the economic ladder. explaining how our free-market system has served as the most incredible engine for opportunity for millions of people from all over the world, who come with nothing and achieve anything. the policies of barack obama do not work, and the people th

are choking the life out of the american economy, which is indeed what is happening. could that be done? what do we think the impact would be? >> i will lead it. >> what do you think would happen if we had millions of small-business owners showing up on the national mall and saying , "this is our country too." tothe government is going -- it would have taken 20% of the taxes paid in mexico. almost 1000 people showed up. there were more people outside than were inside. they werezers said tested out there. i am on the same page with you, carly. >> i marched for the first time 1993. life in summer anof it was a proposal to designate 33 million acres of texas as critical habitat. person isle responsive to the level of interest. i think people should march but i think there should be virtual town halls. shouldcannot come you not be disenfranchised from being heard. >> one of the great opportunities we have comes from technology. everything you're talking about technology makes possible. technology allows us to vote on anything, it allows us to create the opportunity for virtual conversations and t

things. we must prioritize the economy, and power energy growth, reform education. i believe we are starting for leadership -- starving for leadership. i believe revitalization must be addressed on the state and national level. as conservatives, or identity has become lost amidst diverging messages. we need laserlike focus on the economy. we need to analyze every proposal in light of, will this get america back to work? we need to get people working by reducing the government's role in creation of jobs. my state's motto, mountaineers are always free, which is a delicate means to me that we need to limit government and create more workers independence. in west virginia and so many other states, this means treating a level playing field for all businesses, regardless of their union status. west virginia is the perfect ground for our national principles. west virginians are fiscally conservative, we have the best rainy day fund in the nation, but nonetheless, employment has in my state.ed when liberals are the cause of the low economy, they seem to blame conservatives. i don't unde

economy is broken, people are harmless to improve their communities, our best days are behind us and the nation we know and love is in decline. negativity can have even the most positive among us wondering if it is worth it to get out of bed. i have had those days where keeping the covers over my head all they sounded tempting. you from myor haitian-american communities who latino-american friends, there is great coause for confidence. confidence for our ability to restore the economy and bring greatest to this nation again. this is the united states of america and we have never been a nation of fear, blame, or failure. [applause] i am here today able to speak to you and serve in my community because i was raised by people. i was raised by the community. i was not raised by the federal government. at the republican national convention i mentioned that the american determination is found in every channel who looks at the seemingly impossible -- every child who looks at the seemingly impossible and says "i can do that." that is the confidence we need to restore to our nation. true

, election night was a very difficult one for us. we clearly had the better plan to grow the economy, but we failed to convince the voters, and our defeat has been a wake- up call to everyone in the party. we have heard from every corner of america new ideas as to how we can innovate, expand, build a 21st century republican party. let me say plainly -- we do not need to moderate, but we do need to modernize, modernize our outreach to touch everyone in today's demographic and modernize our technology to reach people where they live today. change must be constant. it does not mean we have to be less conservative. we already have one liberal party in this country. we do not need a second one. [applause] even president ronald reagan said, "freedom is the right to question and change the established way of doing things. it is the continuous revolution of the marketplace. it is the understanding that allows us to recognize shortcomings and seek solutions." 1988 in these words in moscow to some university students. it was timely for the russian people then, and it is a message we conservatives need

this was a vision, if we can get it implemented, really would allow america to take off. our economy is recovering. it is resilient. but it not yet where it need to be. we've got millions of people who are still out of work or underemployed. we've still got businesses that could be thriving if we're able to make sure washington doesn't engage in self-induced crises. we'll have a lot of work to do. let's face it, there's still a lot of divisions and arguments here in washington. doing our h we are very west to reach out to the other side, and i think there's a genuine desire on the part of republicans and democrats to try to get something done, i think there is a weariness among membership in the senate and the house about this constant grind, day in and day out of argument and crises instead of productivity and movement forward. the politics of a lot of these issues is tough. and members sometimes are scared about making the right decisions. and they're particularly scared because they're subject to pressure from special interest groups and well financed organizations that may be pushing in a diff

and there'll be more in the pipeline which will help grow our wireless economy. >> i agree with your characterization. the problem -- the devices we are using today are in some cases 128 times more days at -- data intensive than they were years ago. one of the processes established now as modified by the legislation last year involved a notification and auction process. as i outlined, that is an established process by which the fcc would notify about spectrum that could be repurposed for commercial use. if we adopt that process and , that it in a robust way would be fair and flexible for everybody. federal users, the private sector, and i hope we use it more often. >> thank you. >> thank you for holding this hearing. i want to thank my colleagues for their leadership on the unlocking bill. i have been very glad and proud to cosponsor. the proposed merger involving t-mobile and metro pcs, has that been approved? >> it has. >> when? >> today. >> this was released at what point today? >> i don't remember the time. earlier today. >> hours in advance of this hearing. >> yes. >> wasn't app

, but health care, 1/6 of our economy. if the government can control that, they can control just about everything. we need to understand what is going on. there are much more economic models that can be used to give as good health care than what we have now. we were asleep at the wheel to let it happen. we have to find a way to make it work. if we have to work within the frameworks of the affordable health care act, fine. if we can find a way to defund its -- it, fine. 80% of the encounters between a patient and a health-care provider could easily be handled by a health savings accounts. 80% of the encounters with of the need to insinuates a third party or a bureaucracy that sucks out 1/3 of the money. we can use rich insurance and catastrophic insurance. some of them, i do not want to call them more runs, but they are similar to that. -- morons, but they are similar to that. read the book. obviously, i am thinking about those things. it is almost laughable some of the things i hear people say to criticize. they say, he is a neurosurgeon, he could not know anything about economics it
